I'm playing New Vegas on my PC. I want to redirect the audio to my monitor's speakers while my default audio device is set to my TV. I couldn't find anything in the options, is there somewhere else I can specify which audio device New Vegas uses?

You'd have to use an external tool. Windows doesn't tell FNV about all the sound devices available, so it can't control its output. – SevenSidedDie Jul 12 '13 at 23:26

You can use a tool called "Virtual Audio Cable" which is capable of rerouting any audio source on your PC. It is paid, but the trial allows you up to 2 virtual cables:

Another one claims to be free, but I didn't try it yet so I cannot comment it's quality:

Doesn't this require that I'm able to redirect the output of a particular application to the virtual device? – John Straka Jul 13 '13 at 0:53
The cable should be able to detect fallout as audio source and allow to reroute it. – user28015 Jul 13 '13 at 9:28
Thanks, I will give it a shot this weekend. – John Straka Jul 13 '13 at 14:55
Unfortunately it doesn't detect the game as an audio source. Thanks for the link though, VAC looks like it might come in handy sometime. – John Straka Jul 13 '13 at 17:18
